I was very impressed with the size of the Memorial and also the artifact of the plane that they had at the memorial. They also have a gift shop that is sometimes open and sometimes closed. The information at the memorial was plentiful and impressive.

Pylons dedicated to service men/women of all military branches. Very impressive and educational. Small gift shop and very clean restrooms... It's a long way from the last ones and until the next ones! Stop!

Quiet ,understated and remote. A perfect place to respect those who have given so much. Free. Convenient to the highway with plenty of parking. Even saw a moose and calf near the parking lot.
